Synopsis

Million Dollar Baby is the story of Maggie Fitzgerald - a waitress looking to break free of poverty by literally fighting her way out as a boxer. Maggie hooks up with a gruff trainer named Frankie, who softens towards her and takes her under his wing as if she was his own daughter. This award-winning movie skilfully engages the emotions as it proves how complicated relationships can be - by the time the credits roll, you'll have cheered, cried and, most of all, been moved to think hard about those most important to you.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
